I saw some great shows at SHoreline including the one they made a vault release out of but yet I hated that venue. 1st off the grass hil was WAY too steep, second I allways seemed to have horrible luck there in regards to getting left without a ride. Two or three times I had to pay $70 for a cab ride back to Alameda

The Shoreline....i parked in the upper lot and spaced out where. When i left, it took me 2hrs to find my car...i loved the Deadlot scene there, especially when it was down by the ticket office.
Had good friends that sold Tiedye shirts inside the venue there, Robin & Lee

Indoor:
Fox in Atlanta for setting (with Lunt Fontane a close second, but that only applies to JGB)
Kaiser for fun in the halls

Outdoor:
Greek over the Red Rocks if forced to choose (Friday the 13th full moon Dark Star - those opening notes and the thunderous roar). While Chief Hosa was fun, UC football players working secuirty and Hells Angels hassling folks could induce some not fun moments. I also really enjoyed the Frost - it felt like they were playing in your back yard.

yeah, i think they made the Cable Channel feed for the 1993(or was it 92...) Shoreline summer solstice show, at intermission a cable guy with a remote camera walks up the left past the totem pole-panning by and into some of the vendors stands, theirs too, hey! does anyone have a GOOD VHS of that cable show?(it was a PPV)
My friends VCR was set to extra long play-not so good...i think he taped it over some golf or something also. Btw, 25 min ago it was 420 in Sydney...RIP Steve

Summer solstice 89 is the only one I know, is there another? I have the VCD but it's kind of grainy. Decent but not pristine

Uncle Johnny.... how about that smell at shoreline? A breeze blowing the right way and you get all that trash. Lovely. Never encountered the infamose gas geisers that supposedly popped up from the ground in the lawn section.

No live flames for me Shoreline, but getting stuck in the back parking lot in that fine garbage fill dust put minor sqabbles into perspective. On the other hand seeing Bill Graham pick up garbage in the grass and interact with people was good.

To be honest, I don't even remember that! Maybe my pshyche blocked it out? The other thing I remember is it took all damn set break if you needed to take a leak. Used to piss me off ( no pun intended )

i used to come in with 4 liters of dark Microbrew, I'd empty 2- 2liter plastic cheep Coke bottles and refill with Ice cold brew in the lot-slow-careful-little foam.
carefully Re-seal the cap w/clear cement, put into the plastic safeway bag with some deli sandwiches...someone else bring a cooler with Ice, cups.
Like I'd just been to the store-Worked every time
Beat the hell outa $6-$8 brewz. I got into many a venue like that also-
which made those p-lines ohhhhh so loooong!
